4) In Messages, swipe left to delete the entire thread.Or tap and hold the malicious message, tap More, and delete the message from the thread. Another way to get around this freeze is to use the Photos app to send a text message, then once you're in i Message, erase the conversation. The nonsensical message includes two English words, a string of Arabic characters that appears to have no meaning, and a Japanese character.It set the band preference for HSPA+ to CLR and LTE to APT which can cause conflictions and problems when you’re in an area with towers on different bands with stronger signal.The setting has been set back to the default “auto” setting and should help the 4G HSPA+/LTE signal perform a bit better, whether your i Phone 5 is the older edition or the revised edition.This hack also includes a fix to any and all i Phone 5 users who have experienced degraded/weakened signal over the past couple to few months on the PCS 1900MHz and/or CLR 850MHz bands for HSPA+ as well as the APT 700MHz and/or AWS 1700MHz band for LTE.
This is very convinient for users in areas that don’t yet have LTE coverage.
You can head over to i Tweasi OS for the download links and how-to install the hacked carrier update.
It's unclear exactly why it's happening, but a nasty computer bug in Apple's i OS allows anyone who sends an i Phone a certain text message to shut it down. The receiving i Phone immediately crashes upon receiving it. "Apple is aware of an i Message issue caused by a specific series of unicode characters and we will make a fix available in a software update," the company said in a statement.
This hack enables Release 9 DC-HSPA+ on the i Phone 5 and i Pad 3, 4, and mini as well as enhancing LTE data and signal.
Here's how to get back into Messages: 1) Hold down the home button and ask Siri to "read unread messages." 2) When Siri prompts you to reply to the message, say "yes," and say anything you want.3) After you reply, open Messages again (you'll be able to at this point).
